I always get a little fashion geeky about Pantone’s colors of the year, and I’m so glad to see that the Pantone colors of Fall 2013 are eminently wearable. Or, most of them are. Two of my favorites, which also go great together, are the soothing Mykonos Blue, and Turbulence Grey, which is described as a dark, mercurial grey, and a really nice neutral alternative to black.
